Name the three locations that the localizer, glide slope pointers and diviation scales are displayed.
- -PFD (primary flight director)
- -ND (nav display)
- -standby ADI with standby ILS selected
On the AFDS (auto flight display system) (score board) what does CMD and FD mean?
- CMD- Command, an Autopilot is engaged
- FD- Flight director - FD is turned ON on the associated side
During Take off what are the pitch and roll commands giving you?
- Pitch- indicates and initial pitch of aprox 8 degrees up.
- after takeoff- to maintain:V2 + 15 or lift off speed +15
- (if current speed remains above the target for 5 sec, target airspeed resets to current airspeed. max V2 + 25)
- -if you change the airspeed in the window, will pitch for that airspeed
- Roll -Aircraft takes a "snapshot" ground track at liftoff and provides steering commands to maintain that ground track until a new roll mode is selected.
During Go Around what do the Pitch and Roll mode give you?
- Pitch - When go around initiated, to commanded speed is the MCP IAS/MAch window or current airspeed, whichever is higher.
- If the airspeed increases and remains above the initial target airspeed for 5 sec, target airspeed resets to current airspeed to and max of window speed + 25 knots.
- If the airspeed at initiation is greater than IAS/Mach window plus 25, that speed is maintained.
- when Go Around switches are pushed, guidance is to maintain the present ground track
In flight when is the roll mode armed for a Go Around?
flaps out of up or at glideslope capture
